Apsara Beachfront Resort & Villa

Khao Lak, Thailand

The hotel

You could be forgiven for thinking the Apsara is only for water babies, with its beachfront setting, infinity swimming pool, villa pool, two kids' pools, pool villa upgrades, water slide and of course, the obligatory Jacuzzi. But there’s more to the Apsara than sun, sea and sand. Set in unspoilt tropical greenery, along Pakarang Beach, this All Inclusive haven offers a range of drinks and things to do. There’s the Thai cookery classes, Thai boxing, spa treatments, bike rental and kayaking to name but a few!

We stayed 2 bedroom vila. It’s very spacious and has a big swimming pool. It’s so hot even in the morning, and we really enjoyed to relax in there. The villa is cozy and relaxing. Bathroom is clean enough and outdoor shower was quite small but comfortable. The bathroom area has 3 big mirrors on the walls and portable fan, which helped a lot after having hot nice shower. Beds and pillows were very confy, and lights on the floor were nice. Staffs were always helpful and very kind, especially the ladies in the front desk were wonderful. Regarding breakfast, there is everything needed, fresh fruites, bread, rice, cakes, bacon and eggs... and we enjoyed fresh coffee every morning. It was very good. We loved the restaurant Zeus the most, food was really good and reasonable. You can have a rental roadbike which cost you 150 THB for a half day. We visited Ao thong beach with the roadbike, it took about 20 minutes from Apsara. Very refreshing to ride a bike along beachside road. There is no crowded beach and town, totally quiet peaceful nice place to stay. One thing, got to have mosquito repellent! Read less

I returned to apsara after a fantastic holiday there last year. The staff were welcoming and helpful as always, nothing is too much trouble. The weather was as expected, I have travelled to Thailand in the high season and prefer to have the intermittent sunshine and clouds. It rains. It’s Thailand. My hotel room was beautiful, upgraded to a sea view. I ate in Zeus and the buffet restaurant, food was great. Drinks even better! If you want total relaxation this is the place, if you are looking for nightlife and a busy itinerary you may find this location a little too remote. For me it’s perfect, thank you to all staff who make staying at this hotel a real pleasure. See you next year! Read less

My husband and I spent a week at Apsara this month. From the moment we were met at the Airport by the Resort-arranged driver were made feel welcome. The facilities are excellent. We ate at the Resort at all times and the staff were accommodating and friendly. It was lovely to be greeted each morning with a smile. The accommodation was excellent - the staff were more than happy to meet the request for a change of room, with the response that they just wanted to be sure we were happy. It was lovely to sit and have the day roll by with no disruption - it was so quiet. I think it is wonderful that there we had the choice to participate in activities if we wished or just relaxed. The ladies in the Beach Massage have magic fingers - my head, neck and shoulders are craving for more. the Staff in Reception - Golf, Innah, Emee, Yuni and Duy - loved them all. We had such a relaxing holiday which is what we wanted. Thank you to everyone.Hopefully, we will have the opportunity to come back. Read less

My husband and I spent 10 wonderful nights, all inclusive, at Apsara Beachfront Resort to celebrate our Golden Wedding Anniversary and we definitely chose the best place to celebrate. From the minute you arrive, you are treated like royalty by all the staff. We booked a pool access room (114) and we are so glad we did. To be able to walk out of the room and step directly into the pool was a much welcome relief from the heat. There is also an infinity pool that overlooks the beach. The resort is perfect in every way and they supply dressing gowns, slippers, pool towels and 2 complimentory bottles of water daily. You have everything you need to hand. The resort is set in beautiful mature gardens that lead directly on to the white sandy beach and warm crystal clear sea. My husband is a very fussy eater, but not once did he struggle for choice. the food is first class and the service is second to none. The staff are the absolute best we have ever encountered. A very special thanks to Kathin, Jaja and Pon, who looked after us so well and made us feel so welcome. You girls are brilliant. There is a shuttle service from the hotel into Khao Lak and it is very resonably priced. The room mini bar is pretty much on par with shop prices compared to other hotels.Memories bar on the beach next to the resort is a great place to relax and watch the surfers and they also have an elephant home where you can feed and bathe the elephants. No riding them thank goodness. I have mentioned some of the girls in the restaurant, but all the staff are brilliant and if I could name them all I would. The guys in Ila bar deserve a big thank you as well. Overall we really can't thank the staff enough for making our stay so special and it will stay with us forever. If we could give 10 stars, we would. Thank you all. Linda and Terry Read less

We have just spent a memorable, relaxing week at Apsara. From the moment the driver from Apsara picked us up at Phuket International Airport until until the same service a week later the smiling and extremely obliging staff pandered to our every need as if we were royalty. They could not do anything more to make our stay memorable and enjoyable. Apsara is located perfectly with absolute frontage to a wide, white and safe sandy beach at the end of a road with no passing traffic. Guest rooms are appointed to a high standard and are fully air-conditioned for when you want to escape the steamy Thai weather. Food and beverage service in the restaurants and bars is also of a high standard, and the menus provide a wide choice of Thai and international cuisine to suit every palate. The worst part of our stay was the moment we had to leave. We rarely travel to two places more than once, but Apsara is one place we are determined to return when we have the opportunity. Read less
